How to assign multiple Epics to a feature

I am attempting to build a relationship in JIRA, and I appear to be blocked with the limitations that I cannot assign User Stories directly to a feature request , and I can only link 1 Epic to a feature.

In our model, a Feature can consist of Epics and/or User Stories. A feature can be a be linked to Epics (1 or more), User Stories (1 or more), or a combination of Epics and User Stories.

Is this type of model supported?
